1. Introduction
Ford Motor Company and your selling dealer thank you for selecting
one of our quality products. Our commitment to you and your vehicle
begins with quality protection and service.
When you need warranty repairs, your selling dealer would like you to
return to it for that service, but you may also take your vehicle to
another Ford Motor Company dealership authorized for warranty repairs.
Certain warranty repairs require special training though, so not all
dealers are authorized to perform all warranty repairs. That means that,
depending on the warranty repair needed, the vehicle may need to be
taken to another dealer. If a particular dealership cannot assist you, then
contact the Customer Relationship Center at 1-800-392-3673.
This booklet explains in detail the warranty coverages that apply to your
2016-model car or light truck. If you bought a previously owned
2016-model vehicle, you are eligible for any remaining warranty
coverages.
Ford Motor Company provides the Emissions Defect Warranties and
Emissions Performance Warranties which cover your emissions
control systems, and Noise Emissions Warranty which applies only to
medium/heavy duty trucks over 10,000 pounds Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (pages 17-32).

2. Important information you should know
IF YOU NEED CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE
Your Ford Motor Company dealer is available to assist you with all your
automotive needs. Please follow the procedures outlined on the front
page of this booklet.
In addition, if you are an eligible U.S. owner, you may use - at no cost the services of the BBB AUTO LINE program. For details, see Better
Business Bureau (BBB) AUTO LINE program, page 34 or call
1-800-955-5100.
KNOW WHEN YOUR WARRANTY BEGINS
Your Warranty Start Date is the day you take delivery of your new
vehicle or the day it is first put into service (for example, as a dealer
demonstrator), whichever occurs first.
CHECK YOUR VEHICLE
We try to check vehicles carefully at the assembly plant and the
dealership, and we usually correct any damage to paint, sheet metal,
upholstery, or other appearance items. But occasionally something may
slip past us, and a customer may find that a vehicle was damaged before
he or she took delivery. If you see any damage when you receive your
vehicle, notify your dealership within one week.
MAINTAIN YOUR VEHICLE PROPERLY
Your glove compartment contains an Owner’s Manual which indicates
the scheduled maintenance required for your vehicle. Proper
maintenance guards against major repair expenses resulting from neglect
or inadequate maintenance, may help increase the value you receive
when you sell or trade your vehicle, and is important in allowing your
vehicle to comply with applicable emissions standards.
It is your responsibility to make sure that all of the scheduled
maintenance is performed and that the materials used meet Ford
engineering specifications. Failure to perform scheduled maintenance as
specified in the Owner’s Manual will invalidate warranty coverage on
2
parts affected by the lack of maintenance. Make sure that receipts for
completed maintenance work are retained with the vehicle and
confirmation of maintenance work is always entered in your Owner’s
Manual.
Your Ford or Lincoln dealership, or Ford or Lincoln Auto Care Service
Center, has factory-trained technicians who can perform the required
maintenance using genuine Ford parts. The dealership looks forward to
meeting your every service need to maximize your satisfaction with your
vehicle.
WHO PAYS FOR WARRANTY REPAIRS?
You will not be charged for repairs covered by any applicable warranty
during the stated coverage periods, unless specifically stated elsewhere
in this guide.
Some states have mandated alternate time coverage periods for parts of
your vehicle (e.g. seatbelts).
Some states and/or local governments may require a tax on a portion of
warranty repairs. Where applicable law allows, the tax must be paid by
you, the owner of the vehicle.
During the Bumper to Bumper Warranty period, dealers may receive
instructions to provide no-cost, service-type improvements - not
originally included in your Owner’s Manual - intended to increase your
overall satisfaction with your vehicle.
Sometimes Ford may offer a special adjustment program to pay all or
part of the cost of certain repairs beyond the terms of the applicable
warranty. Check with your dealer or call 1-800-392-3673 to learn whether
any adjustment program is applicable to your vehicle. Please have your
vehicle identification number available.
3
DO WARRANTIES APPLY IN OTHER COUNTRIES?
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty and the Emissions Warranties
described in this booklet apply to your vehicle if:
• it was originally purchased through the Ford Export Operations
Military Sales Program; or
• it was originally sold or leased by Ford Motor Company or one of its
dealers in the United States or U.S. Federalized Territories, and it was
originally registered/licensed and operated in the United States, U.S.
Federalized Territories, or Canada.
If you meet either of these two requirements, you do have warranty
coverage when you travel with this vehicle outside the United States,
U.S. Federalized Territories, or Canada. In some cases, however, you may
have to pay the servicing Ford dealer in a foreign country or U.S.
Federalized Territory for a repair that is covered under the U.S.
warranty. If this happens, be sure to save the paid repair order or
invoice. You should present this document to a U.S. Ford Motor
Company dealer for warranty refund consideration. Refer to
www.Ford.com for additional customer assistance reference information.

3. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty for your
2016-model vehicle
LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS
All of the warranties in this booklet are subject to the following
limitations and disclaimers:
The warranties in this booklet are the only express warranties
applicable to your vehicle. Ford does not assume or authorize anyone
to assume for it any other obligation or liability in connection with
your vehicle or these warranties. No person, including Ford employees
or dealers, may modify or waive any part of these warranties.
Ford and its dealers reserve the right to make changes in or additions
to vehicles built or sold by them at any time without incurring any
obligation to make the same or similar changes or additions to
vehicles previously built or sold.
Ford and its dealers also reserve the right to provide post-warranty
repairs, conduct recalls, or extend the warranty coverage period for
certain vehicles or vehicle populations, at the sole discretion of Ford.
The fact that Ford has provided such measures to a particular vehicle
or vehicle population in no way obligates Ford to provide similar
accommodations to other owners of similar vehicles.
As a condition of these warranties, you are responsible for properly
using, maintaining, and caring for your vehicle as outlined in your
Owner’s Manual. Ford recommends that you maintain copies of all
maintenance records and receipts for review by Ford.
5
Ford and your dealer are not responsible for any time or income that
you lose, any inconvenience you might be caused, the loss of your
transportation or use of your vehicle, the cost of rental vehicles, fuel,
telephone, travel, meals, or lodging, the loss of personal or commercial
property, the loss of revenue, or for any other incidental or
consequential damages you may have.
Punitive, exemplary, or multiple damages may not be recovered unless
applicable law prohibits their disclaimer.
You may not bring any warranty-related claim as a class
representative, a private attorney general, a member of a class of
claimants or in any other representative capacity.
Ford shall not be liable for any damages caused by delay in delivery or
furnishing of any products and/or services.
You may have some implied warranties. For example, you may have an
implied warranty of merchantability (that the car or light truck is
reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it was sold) or an
implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose (that the car or
light truck is suitable for your special purposes), if a special purpose
was specifically disclosed to Ford itself not merely to the dealer
before your purchase, and Ford itself not just the dealer told you the
vehicle would be suitable for that purpose.
These implied warranties are limited, to the extent allowed by law, to
the time period covered by the written warranties, or to the applicable
time period provided by state law, whichever period is shorter.
These implied warranties do not apply at all if you use your vehicle
for business or commercial purposes. In addition, the implied warranty
of fitness for a particular purpose does not apply if your vehicle is
used for racing, even if the vehicle is equipped for racing.
6
The warranties contained in this booklet and all questions regarding
their enforceability and interpretation are governed by the law of the
state in which you purchased your Ford vehicle. Some states do not
allow Ford to limit how long an implied warranty lasts or to exclude
or limit incidental or consequential damages, so the limitation and
exclusions described above may not apply to you.
NOTE: This information about the limitation of implied
warranties and the exclusion of incidental and consequential
damages under the NEW VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY also
applies to the EMISSIONS WARRANTIES described on pages
17-31.
Ford participates in the BBB AUTO LINE warranty dispute resolution
program. You may contact BBB AUTO LINE by calling 800-955-5100.
You are required to submit your warranty dispute to the BBB AUTO
LINE before exercising rights or seeking remedies under the Federal
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq. To the extent
permitted by the applicable state ‘‘Lemon Law’’, you are also required
to submit your warranty dispute to the BBB AUTO LINE before
exercising any rights or seeking remedies under the ‘‘Lemon Law’’. If
you choose to seek remedies that are not created by the
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act or the applicable state ‘‘Lemon Law,’’
you are not required to first use BBB AUTO LINE to resolve your
dispute – although the program is still available to you.
For more information regarding the BBB AUTO LINE program, see
page 34 of this booklet.

QUICK REFERENCE: WARRANTY COVERAGE
This chart gives a general summary of your warranty coverage provided
by Ford Motor Company under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Please refer to the description of warranty coverage for more specific
information.
For each type of coverage, the chart shows two measures:
• years in service
• miles driven
The measure that occurs first determines how long your coverage lasts.
For example: Your Bumper to Bumper Coverage lasts for three years unless you drive more than 36,000 miles before three years elapse. In
that case, your coverage ends at 36,000 miles.
For more details on coverage, see:
➡ What is Covered? (pages 8-12)
➡ What is Not Covered? (pages 12-15)
WHAT IS COVERED?
Your NEW VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY gives you specific legal
rights. You may have other rights that vary from state to state. Under
your New Vehicle Limited Warranty if:
- your Ford vehicle is properly operated and maintained, and
8
- was taken to a Ford dealership for a warranted repair during the
warranty period,
then authorized Ford Motor Company dealers will, without charge,
repair, replace, or adjust all parts on your vehicle that malfunction or fail
during normal use during the applicable coverage period due to a
manufacturing defect in factory-supplied materials or factory workmanship.
This warranty does not mean that each Ford vehicle is defect free.
Defects may be unintentionally introduced into vehicles during the
design and manufacturing processes and such defects could result in the
need for repairs. For this reason, Ford provides the New Vehicle Limited
Warranty in order to remedy any such defects that result in vehicle part
malfunction or failure during the warranty period.
The remedy under this written warranty, and any implied warranty, is
limited to repair, replacement, or adjustment of defective parts. This
exclusive remedy shall not be deemed to have failed its essential purpose
so long as Ford, through its authorized dealers, is willing and able to
repair, replace, or adjust defective parts in the prescribed manner. Ford’s
liability, if any, shall in no event exceed the cost of correcting
manufacturing defects as herein provided and upon expiration of this
warranty, any such liability shall terminate.
Conditions that are not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
are described on pages 12-15. When making warranty repairs on your
vehicle, the dealer will use Ford or Motorcraft parts or remanufactured
or other parts that are authorized by Ford, at the discretion of Ford or
the Ford dealership.
Nothing in this warranty should be construed as requiring defective parts
to be replaced with parts of a different type or design than the original
part, so long as the vehicle functions properly with the replacement part.
Moreover, Ford and its authorized dealers are entitled to a reasonable
time and a reasonable number of attempts within which to diagnose and
repair any defect covered by this warranty.
In certain instances, Ford may authorize repairs at other than Ford
dealer facilities.
Two separate warranties apply to tires on your new vehicle. The New
Vehicle Limited Warranty covers tire defects in factory supplied material
or workmanship for 100% of labor costs and on a pro rata adjustment
basis for parts. (See the reimbursement schedule below).
9
For vehicles within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty time in service
and mileage coverage period, defective tires will be replaced on a pro
rata adjustment basis according to the following mileage-based
Reimbursement Schedule:
MILES DRIVEN
1-12,000
12,001-24,000
24,001-36,000
PERCENT OF PARTS COVERED BY FORD
100%
60%
30%
The tire manufacturer also provides you with a separate tire warranty that
may extend beyond the New Vehicle Limited Warranty coverage. You will
find the manufacturer’s tire warranty with the owner literature supplied
with your vehicle. You have the option of having a tire warranty repair
performed by the tire manufacturer’s authorized service center. If you go
to a tire service center for a repair covered by the New Vehicle Limited
Warranty, you may be charged a prorated amount for wear or other
charges. If so, you should present your paid invoice detailing the nature of
the charges to any Ford Motor Company dealership for refund
consideration. When making warranty repairs on your vehicle, the dealer
will use Ford or Motorcraft parts or remanufactured or other parts that
are authorized by Ford. In certain instances, Ford may authorize repairs at
other than Ford dealer facilities. Tire replacements under warranty will be
made with the same brand and model as originally equipped with the
vehicle unless the same brand and model is no longer available, in which
case a tire of the same brand, size, load, speed and tread type will be
used. In some circumstances, Ford may authorize another brand and/or
model to substitute for the original brand and model, even if still available.
Normal tire wear or damage is not reimbursable. See page 15 for details
of what is not covered.
Extended warranty coverage periods are available for certain
vehicle parts and conditions. Specifically,
(1) Your vehicle’s Powertrain components are covered for five years or
60,000 miles, whichever occurs first. The extended coverage applies to
the Engine: all internal lubricated parts, cylinder block, cylinder heads,
electrical fuel pump, powertrain control module, engine mounts,
flywheel, injection pump, manifold (exhaust and intake), manifold bolts,
oil pan, oil pump, seals and gaskets, engine thermostat, engine
thermostat housing, timing chain cover, timing chain (gears or belt),
turbocharger/supercharger unit, valve covers, water pump;
10
Transmission: all internal parts, clutch cover, seals and gaskets, torque
converter, transfer case (including all internal parts), transmission case,
transmission mounts; Front-Wheel Drive: axle shafts, front bearings,

(2) Your vehicle’s safety belts and air bag Supplemental Restraint System
(SRS) are covered for an extended Safety Restraint Coverage Period,
which lasts for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
(3) Your vehicle’s body sheet metal panels are covered for an extended
Corrosion Coverage Period, which lasts for five years, regardless of miles
driven. The extended warranty coverage only applies if a body sheet
metal panel becomes perforated due to corrosion during normal use due
to a manufacturing defect in factory-supplied materials or factory
workmanship. If aluminum body panels have corrosion or rust damage,
and the damage is not the result of abnormal usage, vehicle accident,
customer actions and/or extreme environmental conditions, the corrosion
or rust damage repairs are covered for 5 years, unlimited miles. For
damage caused by airborne material (environmental fallout) where there
is no factory-related defect involved and therefore no warranty − our
policy is to provide free repair of paint damage due to the airborne
material for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
(4) Your vehicle’s direct injection diesel engine and certain engine
components are covered during the PowerStroke Diesel Engine Coverage
Period, which lasts for five years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs
first. The following parts are covered during this extended coverage
period: the engine, cylinder block, heads and all internal parts, intake
and exhaust manifolds, timing gear, harmonic balancer, valve covers, oil
pan and pump, water pump, fuel system (excluding fuel lines, fuel tank
and frame mounted fuel conditioning module sometimes referred to as
the frame mounted pump/filter/water separator or frame mounted fuel
filter/water separator), high pressure lines, gaskets and seals, glow plugs,
turbocharger, two-stage turbocharger assembly, turbocharger actuator,
11
powertrain control module, high pressure fuel injection pump assembly,
injectors, injection pressure sensor, fuel rail pressure sensor, exhaust
back pressure regulator and sensor, exhaust pressure sensor, manifold
pressure sensor, intake air temperature sensor, crankshaft position
sensor, camshaft position sensor, accelerator switch.
NOTE: Some components may also be covered by the Emissions
Warranties. For more information, see pages 17-31.
If you own or lease a 2016-model Next Generation Police Interceptor
Vehicle (NGPI), refer to the Warranty Addendum Card that was given to
you when you took delivery of your vehicle for further explanation of
Amendments to the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The Warranty
Addendum applies only the NGPI vehicles delivered in the State of Florida
and New York.

• fire or explosion
• using contaminated or improper fuel/fluids

installed part fails or causes a Ford part to fail. Examples include, but
are not limited to lift kits, oversized tires, roll bars, cellular phones,
alarm systems, automatic starting systems and performance-enhancing
powertrain components or software and performance “chips”.
Your vehicle may allow, enable or facilitate the use of certain non-Ford
Motor Company software. Ford is not responsible for the functionality
of such software. Ford may disallow, discontinue or modify your ability
to use such software at any time without prior notification or incurring
any warranty or other obligation. Non-Ford Motor Company software
may be governed by End User License Agreement or warranty
provided by the software provider. For Ford Motor Company software
see End User License Agreement found in the Owner Manual.
Damage Caused by Use and/or the Environment
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover surface rust,
deterioration and damage of paint, trim, upholstery, and other
appearance items that result from use and/or exposure to the elements.

• road salt
• tree sap, bird and bee droppings
• windstorm, lightening, hail

to the elements.
13
Maintenance/Wear
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover: (1) parts and labor
needed to maintain the vehicle; and (2) the replacement of parts due to
normal wear and tear. You, as the owner, are responsible for these items. See

• clutch linings
• oil changes
• oils, lubricants, other fluids
• wiper blades*
• oil/air filters
• wheel alignments and tire
balancing*
• tire rotation/inflation
• cleaning/polishing
• brake pad/lining*
* Ford will replace or adjust certain maintenance items when necessary,
free of charge during a limited period:
• Wiper blade replacements will be provided during the first six months
in service, regardless of miles driven.
• Wheel alignments and tire balancing will be provided during the first
12 months or 12,000 miles in service, whichever occurs first.
• Brake pad/lining replacements will be provided during the first
12 months or 18,000 miles in service, whichever occurs first.
SYNC Hands-Free Communications and Entertainment System
If your vehicle is equipped with SYNC, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
does not cover repairs under certain conditions, such as failure to
provide proper installation environment. The New Vehicle Limited
Warranty does not cover repairs of certain damage or loss, such as:
• Loss of personal recording media, software or data
• Loss, change, or discontinuation of functionality because of:
• system updates to Ford Motor Company software or lack of
compatibility with non-Ford Motor Company electronic devices

modification
• the defective function or obsolescence of your cellular phone or digital
media device (for example, inadequate signal reception by the
external antenna, viruses or other software problems)
Tire Wear or Damage
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover normal wear or worn
out tires. Tires will not be replaced (unless required by a warranty
repair) for wear or damage including:
• tire damage from road hazard such as cuts, snags, bruises, bulges,
puncture, and impact breaks
• tire damage due to under or over inflation, tire chain use, racing,
spinning (as when stuck in snow or mud), improper mounting or
dismounting, or tire repair
Other Items or Conditions Not Covered
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover:
• vehicles that have had the odometer disconnected, altered, or
inoperative for an extended period of time with the result that the
actual mileage cannot be determined
• vehicles that have ever been labeled or branded as dismantled, fire,
flood, junk, rebuilt, reconstructed, or salvaged; this will void the New
Vehicle Limited Warranty
• vehicles that have been determined to be a total loss by an insurance
company; this will void the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
• converted ambulances that are not equipped with the Ford Ambulance
Prep Package, see important information about ambulance conversions
(page 36)
• Aftermarket parts or components, sometimes installed by Ford Motor
Company or an authorized Ford dealership, may not be covered by the
New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Any damage caused to Ford
components due to the failure of aftermarket parts (other than a
certified emissions part) is not covered.
15
4. In addition ...
ROADSIDE SERVICE ASSISTANCE
(UNITED STATES, PUERTO RICO, AND U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS)
Your vehicle is covered by the complimentary Ford Roadside Assistance
Program (unless you are driving a daily rental unit). Under this program,
Ford will cover:
• Towing to the nearest Ford Motor Company dealership, or towing to
your selling dealership if within 35 miles
• Flat tire change (vehicle must have useable spare)
• Fuel delivery (limited to two occurances in a 12-month period up to 2
gal. gas, 5 gal. diesel)
• Jump starts
• Lock-out assistance (replacement key cost is customer responsibility)
• Winching (vehicle must be within 100 feet of a paved or
county-maintained road)
The Roadside Assistance Program is separate from the New Vehicle
Limited Warranty. It begins at the warranty start date and lasts for five
years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first). If you need towing
beyond the five years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first) period,
Ford can arrange roadside assistance and charge your credit card. If the
reason for the vehicle disablement is later found to be covered by
another Ford warranty, Ford will provide a refund for the tow charge
under the other warranty, through the dealership.
For emergency roadside assistance, call 1-800-241-3673, 24 hours
a day, 365 days a year.
Ford Rent-A-Car (FRAC) and Dealer Daily Rental (DDR) vehicles that
must be towed because a covered repair has failed during the warranty
coverage period, Ford will cover towing to the nearest Ford Motor
Company dealership.
Ford Motor Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue
Roadside Assistance at any time. Certain restrictions apply to Roadside
Assistance benefits. Call 1-800-241-3673 for further details.

5. Federal requirements for emissions warranties
QUICK REFERENCE: EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE
This chart shows your warranty coverage under two emissions warranties
that Ford Motor Company provides, in compliance with Federal
requirements. The warranties are:
• Emissions Defects Warranty
• Emissions Performance Warranty
For full details on emissions control coverage, see:
➡ Emissions Defect Warranty (page 18)
➡ Emissions Performance Warranty (page 19)
➡ What is Covered? (pages 20-21)
➡ What is Not Covered? (page 21)
17
EMISSIONS DEFECT WARRANTY COVERAGE
During the warranty coverage period, Ford Motor Company warrants that:
• your vehicle or engine is designed, built, and equipped to meet - at
the time it is sold - the emissions regulations of the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
• your vehicle or engine is free from emission-related defects in
factory-supplied materials or workmanship, which are defects that
could prevent the vehicle or engine from conforming with applicable
EPA regulations.
• you will not be charged for diagnosis, repair, replacement, or
adjustment of parts containing an emissions-related defect. Applicable
parts are listed under What is Covered? on pages 20-21.
The warranty coverage period for:
• Passenger cars, light duty trucks (applies to vehicles up to 8,500
pounds GVWR)

Important Information about List of Parts
There may be additional coverage for these parts through the Bumper to
Bumper, Powertrain, or Diesel Engine limited warranties. In any case, the
warranty with the broadest coverage applies.
Also covered by this warranty are all emissions-related bulbs, hoses,
clamps, brackets, tubes, gaskets, seals, belts, connectors, non diesel fuel
lines, and wiring harnesses that are used with components on the list of
parts above.
Concerning parts that should be replaced on a certain maintenance
schedule: these parts remain under warranty until the first required
replacement time that is specified in your Owner’s Manual.
NOTE: If the diagnosis does not reveal a defect, the Defects Warranty
does not apply.
Your Ford Motor Company dealer maintains a complete list of covered
parts. For more details about the specific parts that are covered by the
Defects Warranty, contact your dealer.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED?
Ford Motor Company may deny you emissions warranty coverage if your
vehicle or a part does not contain a defect that affects emissions or has
failed because of abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, unapproved
modifications, or any items included in What Is Not Covered?, pages
12-15.
29
7. Additional information about your emissions warranty
coverage, under Federal and California requirements
HOW DO I GET WARRANTY SERVICE?
To get service under your emissions warranties, take your vehicle to any
Ford Motor Company dealer as soon as possible after illumination of the
Malfunction Indicator Light or it has failed an EPA-approved test or a
California Smog Check inspection. Be sure to show the dealer the
document that says your vehicle has failed the test.
Your dealer will determine whether the repair is covered by the warranty.
If the dealer has a question about Emissions Performance Warranty
coverage, it will forward the question to Ford Motor Company, which
must make a final decision within 30 days after you bring your vehicle in
for repair. (The decision will be made within a shorter time if state, local,
or federal law requires you to have the vehicle repaired more quickly in
order to avoid additional penalties.) The deadline for a determination
about Emissions Performance Warranty Coverage does not need to be
met if you request a delay, agree to a delay in writing, or if the delay is
caused by an event for which neither Ford nor your dealer is
responsible. If a question about Emissions Performance Warranty
coverage is referred to Ford Motor Company, you will be notified by Ford
Motor Company in writing if your claim for warranty coverage is denied.
The notice will explain the basis for denying your claim. If you fail to
receive this notice within a timely manner, as determined above, Ford
will perform the warranty repair for you free of charge.
HOW DO I HANDLE EMERGENCY REPAIRS?
If your vehicle needs an emergency warrantable repair and a Ford Motor
Company dealer is not available, or if a Ford Motor Company dealer
cannot perform warrantable repair(s) within 30 days of you bringing
your vehicle to the dealer, repairs may be performed at any service
establishment or by you using Ford equivalent replacement parts.
Ford will reimburse you for the cost of these warranty repairs including
diagnosis, if you take the part(s) that are replaced and the repair
receipt(s) to a Ford Motor Company dealer. The reimbursement shall not
exceed Ford’s suggested retail price for the warranted parts that are
replaced and labor charges based on Ford’s recommended time allowance
for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly rate.
30
WHAT REPLACEMENT PARTS SHOULD I USE?
Ford Motor Company recommends that you use genuine Ford
replacement parts. However, when you are having non-warranty work
done on your vehicle, you may choose to use non-Ford parts. If you
decide to use non-Ford parts, be sure they are equivalent to Ford parts
in performance, quality, and durability. If you use replacement parts that
are not equivalent to Ford parts, your vehicle’s emissions control systems
may not work as effectively, and you may jeopardize your emissions
warranty coverage.
For vehicles within the warranty period, Ford will repair at no cost to
the owner, under the Federal Emissions Warranty, covered emission
failures caused by properly installed Ford parts or non-Ford parts that
have been certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Ford is not responsible for the cost of repairing any emission failures
caused by non-Ford parts that have not been certified by the EPA.
The maintenance, replacement, or repair of emissions control
devices or systems can be performed by any automotive repair
establishment or individual using Ford replacement parts or EPA
certified parts without voiding your federal warranty coverage
for future repairs during the warranty period.
PROPER MAINTENANCE PRESERVES YOUR WARRANTY
If you do not maintain your vehicle properly, Ford may have the right to
deny you warranty coverage.
To have repairs made under this warranty, you may have to show that
you have followed Ford’s instructions on properly maintaining and using
your vehicle. You will find these instructions in your Owner’s Manual.
Be sure to save your service receipts and to keep accurate records of all
maintenance work.
CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE
If you are not satisfied with the handling of a warranty matter, see
Customer Assistance, on the inside front cover, and Better Business
Bureau (BBB) AUTO LINE program, page 34.

10. The Better Business Bureau (BBB)
AUTO LINE Program (U.S. Only)
Your satisfaction is important to Ford Motor Company and to your dealer.
If a warranty concern has not been resolved using the three-step
procedure outlined on the first page of the Customer Assistance section,
you may be eligible to participate in the BBB AUTO LINE program.
The BBB AUTO LINE program consists of two parts — mediation and
arbitration. During mediation, a representative of the BBB will contact
both you and Ford Motor Company to explore options for settlement of
the claim. If an agreement is not reached during mediation and your
claim is eligible, you may participate in the arbitration process. An
arbitration hearing will be scheduled so that you can present your case
in an informal setting before an impartial person. The arbitrator will
consider the testimony provided and make a decision after the hearing.
You are not bound by the decision, but should you choose to accept the
BBB AUTO LINE decision, Ford must abide by the accepted decision as
well. Disputes submitted to the BBB AUTO LINE program are usually
decided within forty days after you file your claim with the BBB.
BBB AUTO LINE Application: Using the information provided below,
please call or write to request a program application. You will be asked
for your name and address, general information about your new vehicle,
information about your warranty concerns, and any steps you have
already taken to try to resolve them. A Customer Claim Form will be
mailed that will need to be completed, signed, and returned to the BBB
along with proof of ownership. Upon request, the BBB will review the
claim for eligibilty under Program Summary Guidelines.

11. State warranty enforcement laws
These state laws - sometimes called lemon laws - allow owners to receive
a replacement vehicle or a refund of the purchase price, under certain
circumstances. The laws vary from state to state.
To the extent your state law allows, Ford Motor Company requires that
you first send us a written notification of any defects or non-conformities
that you have experienced with your vehicle. (This will give us the
opportunity to make any needed repairs before you pursue the remedies
provided by your state’s law.)
In all other states where not specifically required by state law, Ford
Motor Company requests that you give us the written notice. Send your
written notification to:
Ford Motor Company
Customer Relationship Center
P.O. Box 6248
Dearborn, MI 48126

12. Important information about ambulance
conversions
Ford vehicles are suitable for producing ambulances only if equipped
with the Ford Ambulance Prep Package. In addition, Ford urges
ambulance manufacturers to follow the recommendations of the Ford
Incomplete Vehicle Manual and the Ford Truck Body Builders
Layout Book (and pertinent supplements).
Using a Ford vehicle without the Ford Ambulance Prep Package
to produce an ambulance could result in elevated underbody
temperatures, fuel overpressurization, and the risk of fuel
expulsion and fires. Such use also voids the Ford Bumper to
Bumper Warranty and may void the Emissions Warranties.
You may determine whether the vehicle is equipped with the Ford
Ambulance Prep Package by inspecting the information plate on the
driver’s rear door pillar.
You may determine whether the ambulance manufacturer has followed
Ford’s recommendations by contacting the ambulance manufacturer of
your vehicle.
